IS GOD REALLY WHITE?

IS GOD REALLY WHITE? This is a question that one of our readers asked me this morning in response to our lesson yesterday title: “SIMON OF CYRENE WAS THE BLACK HANDS THAT HELP CARRY THE CROSS.” You can read his questions and my answers to his questions under the comment section at the bottom of this lesson.  Click this link and stroll down to the bottom of the page:  http://wp.me/pf75v-33x

THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS IN ALL THINGS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My friend, your question that you asked this morning, “Is God really White is in truth a really simple to answer.  However, I will not just give you a simplicity answer.  I will begin by answering it this way.  God is neither White nor Black; God is spirit.  We worship God in truth and in Spirit, because God is all there is.  God is everything and everything is God.  Before the world was created, God existed and He created everything out of Himself.  There is nothing are no where God is not.  Therefore, the beautiful colors that we all are, God created them all to represent himself in his beautiful natural self.  The bible says in Genesis 1:27 that God created us in His own image and likeness.   Therefore, what color are we?  Did God not create the rainbow?  Does not the rainbow have many different colors?  Since we all are Gods’ children, do we not represent the rainbow of the Universe?

 

 

Your next question would probably be, what about Jesus, is  Jesus himself God, was He not a white man with long stringy hair and blue eyes?  Well that is the image that the white man in America has created to represent Jesus.  That is not the real Jesus who is the son of God and who is our Lord and Savior.  There is nowhere in the New Testament that includes a physical description of Jesus before His death.  That being the case, how can we come up with a picture of Jesus being a white man with blue eyes?  I am a black man and I have blue eyes.   Various theories about the race of Jesus has been advanced and debated for centuries, but there is no clear evidence of what color is Jesus.  The one thing that we can say for certain is that Jesus is God and He has said so Himself and God is neither white nor Black.

The Prophet Isaiah spoke of Jesus some 700 years before Jesus came to earth.  This is what he said, “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God.”  (Isaiah 44:6 AMP)

In the book of John the bible says this, “In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  (John 1:1 AMP)  Then in verse 14, John further says, “And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth.” When we move to the book of Revelations the bible says this:  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all).  (Revelation 1:8 AMP) During His time here on this earth Jesus said many things about Himself here are a few:

  1. I am Divine
  2. I am the son of man
  3. I am Alpha and Omega
  4. I am the light of the world

Wow, think about that last one, “I am the light of the world!”  What color is light?  Nobody knows the race are color of Jesus, but what we do know is that his message is about God and love, that makes his race and the color of his skin irrelevant. Our calling is to love God with all our being and be conformed to the image of Christ.  He came here to teach us how to live, love and be obedient to the word of God and offer us eternal life.  He was beaten and suffered a horrific death on the cross for our sins that is all the people of the world, not just white people, or black people nor any other race of people.  He did this for all of us and in this day and time, we should be living as one people, being of the same mind as Jesus had, when he said let this mind that is in me be also in you. (Philippians 2:5). Let us celebrate this Easter with the love of Christ in our hearts, and think not of his color or even our own skin color, but love each other, because God first loved us and he has commanded that we love each other.

SATURDAY/SUNDAY MORNING DEVOTIONAL SERVICE OF PRAISE 65

SATURDAY/SUNDAY MORNING DEVOTIONAL SERVICE OF PRAISE 65

PREPARE YOUR MIND FOR PRAYER AND PRAISES

Good Morning Children of God everywhere, it is truly a blessed day that we can open our eyes, lift up our heads towards the mountains from which all our blessings flow, and thank the Lord our God for allowing us to stand together as one in His Holy name.  As we STAND OUR GROUND today to lift Him up in Praise and Worship our desire is to prepare your minds for our SUNDAY PRAYER, PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE in such a way that we all will be on one accord as we lift up His Holy name.

LET US PRAY:  Our prayer is by Pastor Davis, praying for the least among us

OUR SCRIPTURE READING IS FROM (EPHESIANS 6:11-13 AMP)

STAND YOUR GROUND AND PREPARE YOUR MIND FOR WARFARE:

Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.

 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and STAND YOUR GROUND on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].

OUR SONG OF PRAISE: Presented by the Ebenezer Baptist Church Senior Choir

COMMENTRY ON SUNDAY’S PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE:

Our service for Sunday Morning is title: STAND YOUR GROUND from the book of Ephesians 6:10-18 with the sub-title: PREPARE YOUR MIND FOR WARFARE

Every true child of God soon learns that the Christian life is one of warfare.  The hosts of Satan are committed to hinder and obstruct the work of Christ and to knock the individual solider out of combat.  (You as a BELIEVER are a soldier in the army of God). The more effective a believer is for the Lord, the more he or she will experience the savage attacks of the enemy: the devil does not waste his ammunition on nominal Christians.  In our own strength we are no match for the devil.  So the first preparatory command is that we should be continually strengthened in the Lord and in the boundless resources of His might.  God’s best soldiers are those who are conscious of their own weakness and ineffectiveness, and who rely solely of Him.  “God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty (1 Cor. 1:27b) our weakness commends itself to the power of His might.

Let us pray for each other to be strengthening in our time of weakness that the Lord our God will lift us up as He prepares us for battle ready soldiers in His army.  Please share this post with your family and friends and in your social media network in order that we all will be ready for our SUNDAY PRAYER PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE 65 STAND YOUR GROUND!

MIND REALITY THOUGHTS

FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPE FOR:

Faith is the beginning of the triumphant life, but knowledge is its consummation. Faith reveals the way, but knowledge is the goal. Faith suffers many afflictions; knowledge has transcended affliction. Faith endures; knowledge loves. Faith walks in darkness, but believes; knowledge acts in light, and knows. Faith inspires to affect; knowledge crowns effort with success. Faith is the substance of things hoped for; knowledge is the substance of things processed. Faith is the helpful staff of the Pilgrim; knowledge is the city of refugee at his journeys end. Without faith there will be no knowledge, but when knowledge is acquired, the work of faith is finished.

LEARNING SELF CONTROL

LEARNING SELF CONTROL

Studying God’s word allows us to obtain knowledge of who God is, who we are and who we are in God.  When we are able to gain such critical knowledge, and then begin to act on that knowledge, it leads us steady to having SELF-CONTROL over every aspect of our daily lives. Today, allow me the opportunity to talk with you for a few minutes on the subject of LEARNING SELF CONTROL. Click on the video and let us begin:

SELF CONTROL is one of the fruits of the Spirit; SELF-CONTROL refers to mastery over sinful human desires in every aspect of our life.  The Greeks considered this a highly prized virtue. Their focus, of course, was entirely on self-effort, but the problem was that self-effort always fails in the long run because it may control the body but does not affect inward desires.

Therefore, the WORD OF GOD speaks to us and says, “For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.” (2 Peter 1:5-7 ESV)

THE LIGHT HAS COME INTO THE WORLD (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Good morning children of God what a mighty God we serve, he woke us up this morning and started us on our way. We are truly blessed to be able to come together in his holy name and lift him up in praise and worship on this glorious day. I thank him for each one of you who have taken a moment to lift the Lord up in your praises. Now let us lift each other up and bless one another this day. For he said in his word, that where two or more of his children gather in His name, that he will be with us, therefore my brothers and sisters, as I write these words to you this day, I can clearly feel the power of the Holy Spirit moving and stirring about in my hands and throughout my body and mind, prompting me to speak His words of truth to you that you may be empowered to go out and speak the same to others that you may come in contact with. For the Lord has much work for each one of us to do. He is encouraging us to move now and be about His business. We are His sheep and we are gather together in His name to be feed the truth of His word in order that we may go out and feed others that are in need. Let this be the day that you have been praying and asking the Lord to change you into the person that He desires you to be. Be filled with the Holy Spirit and allow the Holy Spirit to direct your life. Lift His up in High praise this day because He is truly worthy of all praise and glory.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE STAY CALM GOD HAS PLANS FOR YOU

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile. (Jeremiah 29:11-14 ESV)
Stay calm; mind your own business; do your own job. You’ve heard all this from us before, but a reminder never hurts. We want you living in a way that will command the respect of outsiders, not lying around sponging off your friends. (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 MSG)

MY MAXAMIZED PRAYER FOR CALMNESS

Father, in the name of Jesus, I seek your blessings for CALMNESS over my life and the lives of all those that you have placed in my pathway. Father as we walk out our purpose in this life and continue to move swiftly towards our destination, with our heads hung high, and our eyes wide open, we seek your guidance over all that we do. We know evil is all around us, threatening to destroy us, but we are leaning and depending on your promises father, and we will remain steadfast in your word, with our minds calm, our eyes focus on the prize, and always minding your own business. This we will do in the name of Jesus. AMEN!

QUESTION: How important is Alter Call?
It is the most important thing that any Servant of the Lord can do. We are called to bring the lost sheep in from the cold. How can we do this if we never call them to come forth and accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior? When we make the call the Holy Spirit will convict them to answer the call. Therefore, if you are truly a disciple of Christ, it is your obligation to make the call.

TODAY’S ALTER CALL:
If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me: “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins. If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE in glory.”

HOW YOUR THOUGHS CAN LIFT YOU INTO THE BLESSEDNESS OF YOUR SEASON OF BEGINNING

HOW YOUR THOUGHS CAN LIFT YOU INTO THE BLESSEDNESS OF YOUR SEASON OF BEGINNING

YOUR THOUGHTS ARE THE SEEDS THAT SPROUT AND GROW STRONG AS THE TALLEST TREE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

YOUR THOUGHTS ARE THE SEEDS THAT SPROUT AND GROW STRONG AS THE TALLEST TREE EVEN IN THE MIDST OF FOG  (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

We begin our last lesson by discussing with you, “HOW GOD HAD PURPUSED YOU TO LIVE IN THE BEGINNING OF THIS SEASON.”  This is how the word of God describes it, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV) God wants you to be joyful and live victorious in your SEASON, because He has made everything beautiful in His own time. But how can you achieve the victory that God has already PURPOSED for you if you enter into your BRAND NEW SEASON with the same old negative thoughts of the pass, holding onto all the baggage that hindered you from achieving the VICTORY and brought you to the end of the past SEASON?

In Proverbs 23:7a the Scriptures say, “For as a person thinketh in his heart so is he:”

Your thoughts create your reality; now let us understand that the most important beginning of all is upon the affliction or blessedness which it inevitably depends, yet the one most neglected and least understood, is the inception of thought that is in the hidden, but causal, region of your mind.  Your whole life is a series of effects, having their cause in your own thought.  All conduct is made and molded by your thought; all deeds, good or bad, are thoughts made visible.

A seed put into the ground is the beginning of a plant or tree; the seed germinates, the plant or tree comes forth into the light and evolves.  A thought put into the mind is the beginning of a line of conduct: your thought first sends down its roots into the mind, thence to push forth into the light in the form of actions or conduct, which evolves into character and destiny.

Loving, gentle, kind, unselfish, and pure thoughts are right beginnings, leading to blissful results.  This is so simple, so plain, so absolutely true; and yet how neglected, how evaded, and how little understood!

The gardener who most carefully studies how, when, and where to put in his seeds gains the greater horticultural knowledge and obtains the best results; the best crops gladden the soul of him who makes the best beginning.  The man, who most patiently studies how to put into his mind the seeds of strong, wholesome, and charitable thoughts, will obtain the best results in life, and gain the greater knowledge of truth.  The greatest blessedness comes to him who infuses into his mind the purest and noble’s of thoughts.

My Brothers and Sisters, I bless this word of truth to you this day that you may receive it and use it to bless others as the Lord will have us to do.  You are truly blessings to God, a blessing to this ministry and to my soul as each of you carry forth His word into the world that we all may learn how to grow in His grace and prosper in the BEGINNING OF THIS SEASON.

We will conclude this lesson in our SUNDAY PRAYER PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE.  Please join us for your blessings, if it’s God will, it is promised to be a powered lesson of blessings for all to learn and help to power them into the BEGINNING of your SEASON.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE IS:     (James 4:13-17 NIV)

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.”Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

TODAY’S MESSAGE:

Stop forgetting the main Ingredient; in today’s message Pastor Davis shares with us a very important message concerning the missing ingredient that has cause a lot of us much pain and heartache in the year 2013, and he attempts to share with us ways that we can avoid such pain and misery going into 2014.  Now click on this video clip and get ready to receive your new year’s blessings.

TODAY’S ALTER CALL:

LIFE PROCEEDS FROM YOUR MIND

Let us understand that our brand new life proceeds from the thoughts we entertain in our minds.  Therefore, I ask this question to see how many of you have thought about it and answered it honestly for yourselves.  Knowing that it was truly a day of celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, how did you center your thoughts upon this fact as you shared your moments with your children, family and friends?  Now think deeply upon it because the memories will help you live, enjoy and appreciate all there is to come from this day forward.  Remember, everything begins from the inside, your thoughts, your actions and who you are all begins in your mind with whatever your thoughts are.

When a person realizes that life in its totality proceeds from the mind, and to the way of blessedness is opened to him or her; they will then discover that they possess the power to rule their own mind, and to fashion it in accordance with their own thoughts and ideals.  At this point you will elect to strongly and steadfastly walk those path ways of thought and action which are altogether excellent; your life will become beautiful and sacred; and, sooner or later, you will put to flight all evil, confusion, and suffering; for it is impossible for a person to fall short of liberation, enlightenment, and peace who guards with unwearyingly diligence the gateway of their mind.

This year has truly been a profound blessing for those whose thoughts have been centered upon the Lord and have allowed the Lord to use them for the greater good of all mankind.  Now that the old year is coming to an end, and a brand new year is about to begin, let us change the way we see the world and all the people the Lord brings us in contact with.  Let us use our mind’s to sow good seeds so that in 2014 the manifestation of what we sow will be great rewards that will lift us to higher places than ever before.

JACOB'S WELL (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

JACOB’S WELL (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

NOW WOMAN, GO AND GET YOUR HUSBAND (John 4:16-26 MSG)

In part 2 of this most important study, we pick up the story of the Samaritan woman who by chance met Jesus at the well.  After Jesus had offered her to drink the living water, Jesus abruptly shifted the subject from his living water to her style of living.  The woman perceived her need for living water at one level.  Jesus knew that her need was far deeper, so he turned the conversation to reveal his knowledge of her personal life, and her sin of adultery.  So here is what Jesus told the woman to do:

He said, “Woman go and get your husband.” Jesus wanted to make this woman see her sin and her need for forgiveness and then offer her the living water, salvation.  She must have realized that this was not a man who could be fooled, for she answered transparently, 17-18 “I have no husband,” she said.”     ”That is nicely put: ‘I have no husband.’ You have had five husbands, and the man you are living with now is not even your husband. You spoke the truth there, sure enough.”  The woman spoke the truth without any explanation.

Although he confronted the woman’s sinful life, Jesus managed to affirm her truthfulness.  He did not accuse or excuse; he simply described her life so that she could draw some clear conclusions about the mess in which she was living.  The conclusions we reach without knowing the facts will usually err in one of two directions:  We will accuse others and raise their defenses, or we will excuse others and enable their denial.  We see in Jesus communication with this woman that when faced with an accepting confrontation, people will often respond positively.  When we speak to others about themselves, we must limit our words to what we know.

Now the woman’s dandruff begins to rise and she says to Jesus,   “Oh, so you’re a prophet! Well, tell me this:  Our ancestors worshiped God at this mountain, but you Jews insist that Jerusalem is the only place for worship, right?”

The woman acknowledged the truthfulness of Jesus remarks about her life.  At the same time, she recognized that he must be a prophet who had the power to “see” the hidden past as well as the future.  The theme of people “seeing” Jesus appears several times in John (especially in chapter 9).  The persons Jesus encountered saw him many different ways, but he consistently directed their attention to recognize him for who he really was, their Savior.

When we as CHILDREN OF GOD, begin to recognize Jesus as our Lord and Savior, then we will begin to worship Him in Spirit as we are commanded to do, we will have been filled with knowledge and power of the truth of who God is, who we are and who we are in Christ.

 

The expression “in spirit” refers to the human spirit, the immaterial, inner being in each person, the God-breathed entity that corresponds to the nature of God himself, who is Spirit.  Using the terms of Jesus conversation, worship involves the person’s awareness of that personal “spring of living water” that God has planted in each believer.  God indwells a believer that is where true worship takes place.  Our body can be anywhere, yet worship occurs as our attention and praise are turned toward God.  We need to consciously focus on God when we are in a house of worship because we easily assume that our presence in church is all that we need in order to worship.  We can usually remember how long the worship service lasted, but can we remember exactly when we actually worshiped the Lord?

In this discussion as Jesus met the woman at the well, Jesus sowed the seeds of salvation in her mind and sent her out to sow seeds in the minds of other Samaritans.  He was preparing the people for a great harvest to come.

We will conclude this discussion in our SUNDAY PRAYER, PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE.  Until then, may the Lord’s blessings be upon each one of you, as you enjoy daily the fruits from His table of Blessings, in Jesus name, AMEN!

 

HAVE YOU ANSWERED YOUR CALL FROM THE LORD?

HAVE YOU ANSWERED YOUR CALL FROM THE LORD?

THE FIELDS ARE WHITE AND READY FOR HARVEST (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

THE FIELDS ARE WHITE AND READY FOR HARVEST (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

THE HARVEST IS RIPE BUT THE LABORS ARE FEW (MATTHEW 9:36-38)

We begin our lesson today and for the rest of the week praying for labors to go forth and gather in the Gospel Harvest.  We asked the question, “HAVE YOU ANSWERED YOUR CALL FROM THE LORD?  Now we set before you the path in which it all must unfold by asking this next question; “How can we be in real sympathy with Christ unless we love the work of laboring in this Gospel harvest, and long to be commissioned to go forth and put in our sickle with our own hand?”  “THE HARVEST IS RIPE BUT THE LABORS ARE FEW!”

Most certainly, if we were in Christ‘s spirit we should say — I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how am I strengthen till it be accomplished? We should cry out, Lord, let me go! Let me go — for dying millions are just now perishing in their sins. How can I pray God to send out others if I am in heart unwilling to go myself? I have heard many say — O that I was young; how I should rejoice to go myself. This seems like a state of mind that can honestly pray for God to send forth laborers.

The spirit of this prayer implies that we are willing to make any personal sacrifices in order to go. Are not men always willing to make personal sacrifices in order to gain the great object of their heart‘s desire? Did ever a merchant, seeking goodly pearls, find one of great value but he was quite willing to go and sell all that he had and buy it?

Moreover, an honest heart before God in this prayer implies that you are willing to
do all you can to prepare your selves to accomplish this work. Each young man or young woman should say God requires something of me in this work. It may be God wants you as a servant in some missionary family; if so, you are ready to go. No matter what the work may be no labor done for God or for man is degrading. In the spirit of this prayer, you will say — If I may but wash the feet of my Lord‘s servants, I shall richly enjoy it. All young person’s especially, feeling that life is before them, should say — I must devote myself, in the most effective way possible, to the promotion of my Savior‘s cause. Suppose a man bows his soul in earnest prayer before. God, saying, “O Lord, send out hosts of men into this harvest-field,” does not this imply that he girds himself up for this work with his might? Does it not imply that he is ready to do the utmost he can in any way whatever?

Again, this prayer, made honestly, implies that we do all we can to prepare others to go out. Our prayer, will be, “Lord, give us hearts to prepare others, and get as many ready as possible and as well prepared as possible for the gathering in of this great harvest.”

Of course it is also implied that we abstain from whatever would hinder us, and make no arrangements that would tie our hands. Many young Christians do this, sometimes heedlessly, often in a way which shows that they are by no means fully set to do God‘s work, first of all.

When we honestly pray God to send out laborers, and our own circumstances allow us to go, we are to expect that He will send us. What! Does God need laborers of every description, and will He not send us? Depend on it, He will send out the man who prays right, and whose heart is deeply and fully with God. And we need not be suspicious lest God should lack the needful wisdom to manage His matters well. He will put all His men where they should be, into the fields they are best qualified to fill. The good reaper will be put into his post, sickle in hand; and if there are feeble ones who can only glean, He puts them there.

One indispensable part of this preparation is a heart for it. Most plainly so, for God wants no men in Hisharvest-field whose hearts are not there. You would not want workmen in your field who have no heart for their work. Neither does God. But He expects us to have this preparation. And He will accept of no man’s excuse from service that he has no heart to engage in it. The want of a heart for this work is not your misfortune, but your fault, your great and damning sin.

 

IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE TO TAKE PLACE

IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE TO TAKE PLACE

CROSSING THE LONG BRIDGE TO CHANGE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

CHILDREN OF GOD, I speak to you today as one of God’s Servant striving to be obedient and do His will in some of the most difficult times we as Christians have faced in a very long time.  We all are facing some very difficult challenges in our lives today.  Although some of us are facing some that are more difficult than others.  But God is challenging us as we go through the trials and tribulations in this life, not to waiver in our faith, to remain strong and courageous, and to abide in Him and He will abide in us.  Therefore, I am commanded to tell you this, “IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE TO TAKE PLACE!”   

Now listen to what I have to say, God wants each of you to begin by, taking your everyday, ordinary life—you’re sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before Him as an offering.  Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Do not become so well adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You will be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.  Now let yourself, “BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR GOD GIVEN MIND!  (ROMANS 12:2)

I am speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relationship to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.

You can take what I have to say to you here right now as meaningless, are you can get up from sitting in front of that television screen are just lounging around in your bed.  The choice is yours.  It is time to stop making excuses are blaming others for your lack of energy and enthusiasm for overcoming your weakness in being true Christian that God has ordain you to be.  Attending more Bible Studies, more prayer meetings, reading more Christian Books, listening to more teaching tapes without an outlet for the truth we have already acquired, will cause us to spiritually decay.  What we need to do right now, is to take what God has given us and use it constructively in the lives of others.  We can do this simply by, “CHANGING OUR THINKING!”

Remember, we all are CHILDREN OF GOD, and we have the mind of God, because we were created in the image of God.  He created in us a Mind that is second to none, and when we learn to use it properly and use it for His good, we can do some truly amazing things.  Always center your mind upon Jesus, the one who can do all things but fail.  When trouble comes your way, problems develop within your mind that seems to be impossible for you to resolve, you must remove fear, doubt and the word, “I can’t,” from your mind.  Then replace them with this one sentence, “I can do all things through God who strengthens me.”   The time is NOW, for both you and me, “TO BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF OUR GOD GIVEN MINDS!”  The choice is ours, tomorrow is not promised.  Change your thinking, and you will begin to CHANGE YOUR LIFE.  Expect a miracle, and a miracle will show up.

 

THE DEVIL IS WALKING ABOUT LIKE A ROARING LION

THE DEVIL IS WALKING ABOUT LIKE A ROARING LION

IN THE JUNGLE OF OUR MINDS THE OLD DEVIL IS ROAMING SEEKING WHOM HE CAN DEVOUR (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Children of God, the Lord is calling you to be very careful in your daily walk, because at every corner the old devil is seeking who he can devour.  With our Government shut down, and many more people are beginning to face some hard times, the gateway into our minds have just been opened a little wider for the devil  to enter in and take us down.

Our minds are susceptible to greater evil when we are put at risk such as our government leaders have now done.  This allows the old devil to roam and seek his victims out one by one.  The Bible tells us this, it says, “Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.” (1 Peter 5:8 AMP)

Know that if you are not careful in your walk with God you will be his next victim.  You must learn to grow in GOD’S grace.  Know that a believer’s growth sometimes may be hindered or halted by three distinct enemies: the Devil, the world, and the flesh.

We are warned how the Devil walks or roams about like a lion.  When lions hunt, they look for weak, young, isolated, unguarded animals.  They are the ones marked for attack.  The Devil’s ultimate agenda is to destroy us, not merely to hurt, maim, or discourage, but to devour and destroy us.  He does that when he gets us to bow to circumstances, pressures, or forces of his evil design, hoping thereby to make us yield to him.

To overcome this evil spirit we must adopt a reverse strategy: B.O.W. TO JESUS, the One you BELIEVE, OBEY and WORSHIP.  He overcame, refusing to bow to Satan’s devices (Matt. 4:8-10), and our growth in Him will bring the same ability to resist or stand against the Devil (1 Peter 5:9). We must be clothed in the full armor of God: be armed with the Word of God (Eph. 6:10-14), believe Him (Heb. 11:6), obey Him (1 John 3:24), and worship Him (John 4:23).  Receive Christ’s overcoming victory!

We as citizens of America have been put at risk, and the most vulnerable among us are been pushed into the direct path of the old devil.  But let us remember this, God has promised us that he would never leave us or forsake us.  He calls us to cast all our cares, our anxieties, our worries and concerns upon Him, because He cares for us affectionately and cares about us watchfully.

And finally my brothers and sisters, He reminds us to Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset—rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. (1 Peter 5:9 AMP)

Now may the grace of our Lord and Savior cover you and keep you out off the clutches of the old devil and his evil spirits.  Be encouraged, stay focus, and stay strong as you keep your eyes on the prize which is Jesus Christ.

LET US PRAY AND CONSIDER LIFE

LET US PRAY AND CONSIDER LIFE

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES

A Proverb 31 woman is a Woman of Prayer

A Proverb 31 woman is a Woman of Prayer

Today is the first day of the rest of your life, so why not pause your busy body and mind, you’re going and coming; go into your prayer closet and pour your heart out before God as you consider your life and where you are in it this day.  God is in the prayer answering busy and He wants to answer your prayers and show you how you can live a joyful, peaceful, and prosper in all you do.

Let’s consider life and how we may see it.

Every individual is entitled to their own opinion and or belief; no matter what, we all believe in something or someone. The Holy Bible, the written Word of God is studied and shared throughout the world. In it you find instructions for living life filled with hopes and dreams for all humanity, as well as wisdom teachings.

Let’s consider life:

When we take time to explore scripture, pray first and ask for revelation and understanding; you’ll find that when you do so in a quiet place the Word opens up and you’re able to grasp the true meaning of how life is a blessing from God, a blessing to be enjoyed and shared.  Remember Jesus’ teaching about the value and importance of love for each other. Once we are able to grasp the true definition of how that love operates we come into a deeper understanding about life.

Let’s consider life:

The book of Ecclesiastes provides us with a glimpse into the reality of this earthly journey. Once you’ve immerse yourself into the reading you’ll soon gain an understanding of our delicate nature. We are encouraged to make the most of what God gives; Life.  Advice such as, take care of yourself, have a good time and make the most of  whatever life you are privileged to share. We should make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it, accepting what’s given and delighting in the work. It is “God’s” gift in the present, the now. It’s useless to brood over how long we might live. Jesus says he came so that we might have life, an abundant life. When we consider life, are we ourselves restricting the flow of God’s blessings designed especially for each one of us in due season?  We work to feed our appetites; meanwhile our souls go hungry.

Let’s consider life:

We are reminded in scripture; don’t fret or worry; instead pray–let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayer, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life (Philippians 4:5-7 MGS).

 

So when we consider life and become familiar with the process of how faith works we are able to experience growth in all areas of our lives, because we have a true friend in Jesus who promised to meet all our needs. He even lets us know how to approach the process, “Ask, and it shall be given; seek and you shall find; knock and the door will open for you”(Matthew 7:7 KJV). Unlock your door, open wide and receive the promise  by opening the Word of God and applying the teachings found there as you journey and live in your purpose. Let’s consider life and become a part of the pattern laid out by our Master Jesus.

 

FAITH AND DOUBT CANNOT LIVE IN THE SAME HOUSE

FAITH AND DOUBT CANNOT LIVE IN THE SAME HOUSE

Faith and Doubt 02

Faith and Doubt the optimist and the pessimist

Faith and Doubt the optimist and the pessimist

My Brothers and Sisters, I encourage you this day to learn how to live and walk in faith.  Stop allowing faith to be a word that you use to try and convince others about your faith when your actions speaks with a different mindset, because truly I say to you this day, “FAITH AND DOUBT CANNOT LIVE IN THE SAME HOUSE!”

Now click on this short video clip and allow me to speak to you mind some words of wisdom that will further help clarify what this all really means to you.

Here is what James, the brother of Jesus tells us about Faith and Doubt; he says, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts, is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. (James 1:2-8 ESV)

 

THE TIME IS NOW TO EXAMINE YOUR ENERGY FIELD

THE TIME IS NOW TO EXAMINE YOUR ENERGY FIELD

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES

 

GOD PROVIDES OUR SOURCE OF ENERGY (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

GOD PROVIDES OUR SOURCE OF ENERGY (PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES)

 

OUR GOAL IS TO LISTEN AND LEARN WHAT THE ENERGY SOURCE IS COMMUNICATING TO US:

 I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13 ESV)

 When is the last time you missed out in EXAMINING YOUR ENERGY FIELD?  Your ENERGY FIELD should be connecting at all points and at all times, of-course the unexpected will happen usually when least expected. So if our lives are going to be connected to the ENERGY SOURCE we must be on watch for interruptions, disconnect and/or total blackout; examining your ENERGY FIELD allows space for tune-ups and recharging.

 Keep vigilant watch over your heart, it’s where life starts, avoid gossip and evil ; you will soon learn that those who take to gossip causes much trouble, they’re restless and constantly seeking ways to make other’s lives miserable by doing so, one may ask the question, are you taking time and opportunity to examine  your ENERGY FIELD? When saying and doing things that causes others harm, in some way you’ve allowed yourself to venture off course.

Keep your eyes straight ahead, ignore those tactics that can cause you to lose focus of the source that gives your life sustaining ENERGY; EXAMINING YOUR ENERGY FIELD helps you to realize you need to refocus and get back on course. In your journey, watch your step, the road will stretch out smooth before you and keep you on course.

Now many may wonder, “WHAT IS AN ENERGY FIELD?” It’s the interconnection between your SPIRIT and GOD’S SPIRIT that dwell in your earthly body. The difference is, God is the giver and sustainer of life, so he knows when we break from him, and he watches over us. We are given the opportunity to reconnect and fill our SPIRITS with the GOD given light, the choice is ours.

WORDS OF WISDOM give directions for life, words that encourages you to consider the importance of EXAMINING YOUR ENERGY FIELD. Gods’ words are like a beam of light on a dark path, when we commit our way to him. Ponder his teachings, watch your step and avoid detours by living in obedience and respect for God; learn to live life in expectancy. Keep God’s words close to your heart, follow his instructions and live in freedom of grace. By EXAMINING YOUR ENERGY FIELD you are in constant awareness when default occurs.

Many would like to know the MIND OF GOD and how it works, but that is the beauty of the mystery, the source of all ENERGY FIELDS, he designed it that way before human nature came into existence. He is the source of power and strength that alone should encourage our hearts when we feel lost or disconnected.  Examining your ENERGY FIELD helps you be reminded that there is a “STATION” for repairing and replenishing so why not tap into the source? Are you looking for blessings, fulfillment, and joy, peace of mind, strength and power? Tap into the SOURCE, you will find that by taking time to EXAMINE YOUR ENERGY FIELD, you’ll find the place to reconnect, thus reap the benefits.

God is the maker and creator of all elements of the universe and is the point of all existence; therefore, taking time to get to know the source gives each of us a chance to share in “all” he has to offer. We are able to relate to each other because we are connected in such a way that in a human state we are not able to understand the magnificent gifts of all we are blessed to share.

He launches his promises earthward–how swift they are to come! He spreads snow like a white fleece, he scatters frost like ashes; he broadcast hail like birdseeds–who can survive his winter! Then he gives the command and it all melts; he breathes on winter–suddenly its spring! (Psalm 147:12-18, MGS). The awesome power of God is at work, at all times.

Now I encourage you to think deeply on these things, for they are truly the mysteries of God that opens the doors that connects us to the source of all Energy in the Universe.  We live in the present and the oneness of all that God provides for us to gather unto ourselves at any moment in time.  Then He allows us to use our deep imagination to travel through space in time powered by the greatest Energy Source ever known to man.  When we take the time to fully engage our Minds with the Spirit that lives within, we are re-connecting and re-powering our fuel cells with the Energy Source that no man can give to us.

Know that you and I are marvelous made and we function in this Universe as Energy, because God made us that way.  However, in order for our bodies and minds to always function at the highest level possible at all times, you and I must take time to RE-EXAMINING OUR ENERGY FIELD!  Now listen to what the word of God says, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.” (Ephesians 6:10 ESV)

 

 

 

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO TRANSFORM YOUR DREAMS INTO REALITY

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO TRANSFORM YOUR DREAMS INTO REALITY

Shania A. Byars the Dreamer (Photo by Pastor Davis)

Throughout this year we have discussed with you many times the word transformation.”  We have done so because we realized early on as we begin this teaching ministry that in order for us to be successful at what we were doing, we to needed to be in the flow of the transformation process. 

We have learned a great deal from your many wonderful comments, and as we continue into 2012, we will apply the knowledge and understanding we gleamed from your thoughts and apply them to our teaching methods in hopes that many more of you will gain some valuable lessons from what is being taught here.

The subject of this lesson is:  “YOU HAVE THE POWER TO TRANSFORM YOUR DREAMS INTO REALITY.”  The very first thought in many of your minds will be doubt.  Saying, I don’t have any power.  Others have the power, but I am powerless to transform a single dream I have ever had into reality.  That is truly the kind of negative thinking that hinders you from becoming the genius that God destiny you to become from the very beginning of time.  Now let me encourage you to pause your reading right here for a moment and watch this short video clip as it helps to further engage your mind with great thoughts of manifesting your dreams into reality.  Please continue reading on the other side of this video clip.  After you have completed this message, do not forget to click on the share button and share it on your social networking page as well as with friends and family.

Let us understand this one very important thing in our lives, and that is, our negative thoughts are the seeds we plant in our minds that begins the process of creating lack, poverty and all the things that we have dreamed of having, but have not been able to obtain in our lives thus far.

When your thoughts are always centered on the negative side of life, you set up the conditions which correspondence with the predominant mental attitude in your mind.  Therefore, if we fear disaster, as fear is a powerful form of thought, disaster will be the certain result of our thinking.  It is this form of thought which frequently sweeps away the result of many years of toil and effort.

However, if we begin the process of planting positive seeds in our mind instead of the negative ones and begin to think of some form of material wealth, the results will be that it will show up at the time and place it is most needed.  By concentrated thought the required conditions will be brought about, and the proper effort put forth, which will result in bringing about the circumstances necessary to realize our desires; but we often find that when we secure the things we thought we wanted, they do not have the effect we expected.  That is, the satisfaction is only temporary, or possibly is the reverse of what we expected.

This condition is because, we lack the knowledge of the power and where that power derives from.  Know that God is the source of all power that we have within our physical bodies and spiritual minds.  Therefore, we must learn to lean and depend on God when we are face with the difficult task of the transformation process.  Listen to what God tells us to do, He says, “ Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).  (Jeremiah 33:3).

 

When you are ready to put your trust in God, the power of transformation will show up on your front door step.  The power to make this happen is already within you.  God gave this power to you from the very beginning of time.  So when you say you are powerless to make your dreams become a reality, think on this, “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.  (Psalms 37:4-5 AMP).

We must transform our thinking in order to realize our dreams.  The old orthodox way of thinking was to be “a worm,” to be satisfied with our portion whatever it is; but the modern idea is to know that we are entitled to the best of everything, that the “Father and I are one” and that the “Father” is the UNIVERSAL MIND, the CREATOR, the ORIGINAL SUBSTANCE from which all things proceed.

Now admitting that to transform your thinking from the negative to the positive and it has been taught to us for more than two thousand years, and it is the essence of every system of Philosophy or Religion, then how are we to make it practical in our lives?  How are we to go get the actual, tangible results here and now that will make our dreams become a reality?

First, let us begin by putting our knowledge into practice.  Nothing can be accomplished in any other way.

The athlete may read books and lessons on physical training all his life, but unless he begins to give out strength by actual work he will never receive any strength; he will eventually get exactly what he gives; but he will have to give it first.  It is exactly the same with us; we will get exactly what we give, but we shall have to give it first.  It will then return to us many fold, and the giving is simply a mental process, because thoughts are causes and conditions are effects; therefore in giving thoughts of courage, inspiration, health or help of any kind we are setting causes in motion which will bring about their effect.

Let us understand that your thoughts are spiritual activity and is therefore creative, but make no mistake, thought will create nothing unless it is consciously, systematically, and constructively directed; and herein is the difference between idle thinking, which is simply a dissipation of effort, and constructive thinking, which means practically unlimited achievement.

Remember, you have the power to make the transition from the old person to the new person.  It all lives in the power of your belief system, your thought process.  Now take advantage of the power that God has given to you, stop giving lip service to who and what you are and become the true creative power that lives within.

We minister to you this day from the position of PEACE, PURPOSE, POWER and PROSPERITY.  Learn to think Globally as you work Locally to make this major transition in your life.  I remain your brother in CHRIST, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!
